To MRS. WARREN F. DRAPER
in this, her ninetieth year
Now just across the street from us, —
There lives a friend so dear,
That all who know her, love her with
A love that grows each year.
Each day as back and forth we pass,
Intent on work or play,
We see her wave; her cheery smile
Helps us through all that day.
As we go forth from Abbot now, —
'Twill help us Seniors still,
To feel her strength and comfort in
The place we have to fill.
So this our book we dedicate,
Our constant friend, to you.
To whom through all the coming years
Our hearts will e'er be true.

ACT I. SENIOR MIDDLE YEAR
Sc. 1 Election of Officers in Abbot Hall
We enter the new year rather timidly, feeling awed by the presence of the dignified
and original Seniors.
Sc 2 Hockey Game with the Seniors
Enthusiasm and pride exhibited as we led our girls to battle, although we brought
them back with a tied score. Singing rather weak, lacking the confidence that
the Seniors had.
Sc. 3 Senior-Mid Play
Comments left to be made by those who saw it.
Sc. 4 Banquet
Hilarious excitement! It was the first thing that really brought the class together
as a whole and it was also the first class banquet that Miss Bailey had attended at
the school, and we felt highly honored.
S( . 5 Introduction to the "Senior Parlor"
The Seniors welcome us into the "Senior Parlor." It was at that moment, and
during all the Commencement Exercises, that it swept over us that the Seniors
were going: those girls who had helped and encouraged us all that year, and inspired
in us real Abbot spirit. We had to brace our shoulders against that fact, however,
and live up to the traditions they had given us.
ACT II. OUR GLORIOUS SENIOR YEAR!
It came upon us before we knew it. and now it is almost gone, we
know not where.
>< . 1 Election of Officers
It was a joyous meeting, our first one. and after we had elected our officers we tried
to plan all that we wanted to crowd into one short year and what that year would
mean to each one of us. We arranged a series of teas for the new girls, to show
them the Senior Parlor and the fine victrola. for which we thank 1913 and wish
that they could realize all the pleasure it has given the whole school this year. Our
class rings came early in the fall and we were very much pleased with them.
Sc. 2 Frolics: —
Although the day for the straw-ride was rather gloomy, it did not dampen our spirits
as we drove over to Mrs. Boutwell's barn, where we had a great deal of fun. It
has been the wish of every Senior to keep the class as united as possible, so we have
had several gatherings during the year around the fire in the Senior Parlor, where
we have toasted marshmallows and sung our songs, or else we have all come together
for a chafing-dish supper. These have added much to the year's happiness!
Sc. 3 Intervale — Four Days of Fun!
It will always be a disputed statement, whether our class had the best time, or 1913,
the first class to enjoy this privilege. Of course we each have our opinion on the
subject. May 1915 have just as good a time, and better, if that is possible.
Sc. 4 Senior Play
This scene required much hard work and the denial of many good times, but we
were glad to do it for the school and for our class. We gave "The Winter's Tale."
Sc. 5 Spring Term and Commencement
Is it possible that this is our last term of school-life at Abbot Academy 'i It grows
harder to realize it every day, now that the end is so near. When our Senior Banquet
is over and the Commencement Exercises are through, we will go out to take our
places in this big, interesting world, with our hearts and minds made broader, more
sympathetic and intelligent by their contact with this school, its teachers, and
pupils. We can never forget the happy days spent here, and may we ever strive
to "live in the large" and be loyal daughters to our Alma Mater and the Class
The day has come when we depart.
Stand free from all that's gone before,
When each of us goes out alone.
And trembling knocks at Life's great door.
And lest we be forgotten quite.
When we have travelled far away.
We leave behind a birch-tree white.
In sacred memorv of this day.
Oh. little tree, so small, so thin.
May'st thou grow tall and straight in form.
And may'st thou stand for many years
And long endure both wind and storm !
Oh, may we straight and steadfast grow.
And learn, alone, to fill, like thee.
The place that Fate shall make for us,
And sail, victorious, Life's rough sea! — E. B.

Have you met the men of our class?
They are strangely like the girls,
Their hair is plastered down so slick,
Yet round the edge it curls.
And maybe if you look quite close
You'll see that their back hair
Goes down below their collars,
Or perhaps is twisted there.
Then, too, their feet are very small,
And shod in English cut,
And their hands are always soft and white,
And free from stain or smut.
Their tones are low and musical,
Yet 'twould hardly be the case
That one of them could win a prize
For skill in singing bass.
But any such deficiency,
They make up in their ties,
The colors are so bright and gay
The styles so very nice.
In fact, their clothes, these men of ours,
Are very up-to-date,
Their suits look like their brothers'
The models just as late.
Exclusiveness marks all our boys,
Notoriety they fear,
They scorn the day-time function,
And at eventide appear.
We'll ne'er forget those boys of ours.
They're the nicest ones we know,
And to find out their equals
We've very far to go.
Beware the German measles!
They're really dangerous, dear!
If we should all be spotted
We'd look so very queer.
It's really Aery trying
That Phillips is so near,
But then, the germs do manage
To separate us, dear.

A riot was almost created at the fourth precinct polls today when Miss Hildegarde Gut-
terson, a well-known and admired resident of Winchester, mounted a box and tried to urge
the women not to vote. "Woman's place is in the home," and all the ancient war-cries of
the antis of ten years ago, marked her speeches. She was quieted only by force.

The Young Lady Across the Way heard that they were going to forbid spreads at Abbot
and after thinking it over she said that of course spreads were all right but that for her part
she thought after all comforters were warmer.
I asked the Young Lady Across the Way, after she had returned from a visit to Abbot,
if she had heard any of the serenades of the Phillips students. She said that she did go to the
Inquiry Social, but that for her part she always found the syllables hard to guess.
The Young Lady Across the Way was asked if she approved of Student Government
in boarding schools. She replied that for her part she thought it was wise to give the news,
but she didn't believe in some of President Wilson's theories.
I asked the Young Lady Across the Way whether she thought the period of isolation

was a great safeguard but some people preferred to have it young.

The Student Council of Abbot Academy was founded in 1911. It is a group of girls
chosen by the student body, which strives to keep up the good reputation of Abbot in all
ways. This holds for matters both outside and inside the school, but does not affect keeping
of study hours, tardiness, spreads, etc. It is expected that each girl in the school will heartily
cooperate with this representative body and will assist the members in securing the best
interests of all the students.

The Junior-Mids do romp and race,
And often fall into disgrace.
But they will dignity acquire.
Which in due time, all will admire.
The Juniors are so young and green,
Their number scarcely is sixteen,
But they will grow in grace, we hope,
And have of knowledge, wider scope.
The Preps are scarcely in their teens,
Poor dears, they haven't yet the means
To overcome their bashfulness,
But Fourteen's influence soon they'll bless.

A LL WORK of Taste must bear a price in proportion
to the skill, time, expense and risk attending their
invention and manufacture. Those things called dear are,
when justly estimated, the cheapest. They are attended
with much less profit to the artist than those which every-
body calls cheap. A disposition for cheapness and not for
excellence of workmanship is the most frequent and certain
cause of the decay and destruction of Arts and manufactures.
